the transmission would need to come out to replace the flywheel
and yes,,it would be a good idea to replace the rear seal while you have the trans out
give me a moment,,,i may have instructions for this
I have worked on a few cars and replaced a few flywheels, but different makes different problems. Do you have any sugestions or hints?

Fuel Hose Connector Removal Procedure:
If removal of the fuel hose connector is required for transmission servicing and/or replacement, follow the steps below. NOTE: - An O-ring is used as a seal between the fuel pipe and the connector. Take care not to damage the contact surfaces during the removal procedure. do not allow the surfaces to become contaminated with dirt or other foreign material. - Perform the entire removal procedure with your hands.
